A truly beautiful house and location made our stay in Briancon a memorable one. The property has everything you require and the owner Giles is the perfect host.
Close to local amenities, superb views over the city and mountains with easy access to enjoy the makes this ideal for accessing the Serre Chevalier ski resort.
Would we stay here again? Absolutely.
A wonderful stay.
Everything about our stay was ideal. Gilles is a perfect host and has a beautiful home set in an amazing location. If anything the photographs do not do it justice.
We will not hesitate to stay here again the next time we are in Briancon.
Wonderful Apartment, with friendly owners.
We had a great week, the apartment was spotless and very well equipped. It's huge with the best wood burning fire I have ever seen. Highly recommended.
thank you for your appreciation, hoping to see you again soon
This is a beautiful property, perfectly located within the Briançon area, definitely stay again.
The location, facilities and high quality of this home was perfect for our trip to France. Gilles was the perfect host, there whenever we required him, nothing was too much trouble.
This was our 6th time to visit this part of France and our plan will be to stay here again for our future visits, easily the best place we have ever stayed.
Great place to stay, comfortable and well situated
Good hosts very welcoming. Comfortable beds, good facilities, well situated

A lovely comfortable home from home
Villa Briancon was everything its description promised - and more. It has the most magnificent view across to the old town and is extremely well situated, especially if you have a car (or two, as we had).
The owners, Gilles and Isabelle, who live in the apartment below, were extremely welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and we quickly felt very much at home.
The property, which was spotlessly clean when we arrived, is spacious and well laid out and was always warm with plenty of hot water - particularly appreciated after a day's skiing! Everyone in our party (five adults, three teenage boys) agreed the beds were comfortable and plenty of bedding and linen was provided. The kitchen is well equipped, with every appliance and utensil you could need and a large supermarket and shopping centre is just 5 minutes walk down the hill for provisions.
We booked our ski passes and hired equipment from the Briancon ski centre which is just minutes away by car but as it was the New Year week we were advised that it would be less busy to ski from Chantemerle, 3-4 kilometres up the road, and this area was our focus for the week. Providing you arrive reasonably early in the morning you can park close to the gondola station (5 euros a day) or there is a larger parking area (free) on the outskirts, a 5-10 minute walk from the gondola station, depending on how much kit you are carrying! The speedy gondola takes you up to the slopes and there's a good range of runs to choose from as well as plenty of cafes and this ski area kept our party (a mix of beginners to advanced intermediates) happy for the week.
It was a pleasure to return home to Villa Briancon each evening and we have no hesitation in recommending it to friends or relatives. We imagine it must also be a wonderful base in the summer months - something for us to think about for the future?
